As an aunt I can tell you the secret to getting the kiddos to quite down when they're crying. It is very simple: step 1) hand kiddo of to his or her's parent. Step 2) run for the hills and never look back!!
Congrats on becoming an Aunt. X3 You're gonna love it, I've seen all my nieces and nephews as babies and watching them grow overr the years is just... indescribable. ^w^ And being able to spend time with them and getting them nice gifts once in a while, when I can afford it. XD
Haha, poor Veruka. XD Her flames can't be turned off! ..Unless you dump a lot of water on her head. XP
